we’ve been not-very-heavily looking for a house (same city). we love our little house, but the neighborhood has gone from a student ‘hood to a a frat-boys-kicked-from-campus enclave – not a good thing.
so, a few weeks ago we saw this one
made an offer, went back and forth, yadda yadda yadda…ours and the bank’s since last Friday. so yay, kinda. it’s in good shape but we want to replace the carpet in the bedrooms, have the interiors painted, a few other things. so not moving for a while.
if so inclined you can come see me and watch me descend into madness over paint color samples

(alt title: It Takes Something As Momentous As Ol’ Nick To Get Me To Blogging)
in a month, four weeks, twenty-eight days, I’ll be seated at the Keswick in Philadelphia waiting for The Bad Seeds to take the stage; the intrepid Crankypants will be there, plus a fellow Nickcaveite from Baltimore.
should be an awesome show, as always. this will be my third time through the NickExperience (twice with The Bad Seeds, once with Grinderman). I’m confident it the live show will be memorable, even though I’m underwhelmed by the new album, Push the Sky Away. I’ve listened to the album several times since it began streaming last week and there is much Warren Ellis and the soundtracks Nick and Warren have composed in the last few years – lots of strings, loops, a melancholic sound, nothing like the ferocity of Dig Lazarus! Dig!!
It will still be a show worth the trip, because one thing I’ve learned after seeing Nick twice, is that songs that I didn’t care much for as recorded, were amazing live. “Moonland” and “Midnight Man” from DL!D!! , “Kitchenette” and “When She Comes” from the second Grinderman album were high points of their respective shows.
here’s the video for one of the standouts from the new album, “Jubilee Street”; I’m so looking forward to see it live
all of us will be with family (physical/metaphysical) the next few days. let’s remember that we can all go back to our normal fighting bickering ways after the holidays.
mSB had no idea that an adventure was brewing
where are we going?
he was very excited; not much fun stuff happens chez mariser
fell down from the excitement
actually, we vote insid
mSB knows to vote for the best cooky (all of them)
mSB wanted to vote for Dr. Jill Stein because she’s the prettiest
Jill Stein understands the needs of Fabric-Americans
mSB was overruled. something something about needing to have the popular vote alongside the electoral college, blah blah blah
babo was overruled
but mSB got a nifty sticker!
we voted. it’s cooky time!
mSB really, really hopes there are cookies after this. voting is exhausting!
I’m taking the liberty to post instead of LT, (without her permission) who’s had a day full of excitement and no sleep.
TK is back! the LTs heard him yowling in the backyard this morning – he was near his birthplace in the woodpile. he seems ok, but going to the vet for a check up.
